More later, but I am delighted to report that Amanda Marcotte, formerly of Mousewords and now of Pandagon, is leaving to become Blogmistress for the John Edwards presidential campaign. Many wonderful and well-known feminist bloggers will be stepping in at Pandagon as Amanda assumes her new duties in North Carolina.
Amanda cites this interesting Kate Michelman interview; Michelman makes the case that Edwards (rather than Hillary Clinton) is the best candidate for the feminist vote. It’s an interesting read.
I’m still on board (if small amounts of money can be considered “on board”) with my boy Dennis Kucinich. But I’m as yet agnostic about the major candidates in the race (Edwards, Obama, Clinton), and might well end up joining the sublime and winsome Ms. Marcotte. I think a John Edwards-Bill Richardson ticket in 2008 would be pretty damn formidable.
More at lunch, baruch hashem, deo volente, if the creek don’t rise, and all that.
